Mood – Good
Study Time – 4.0 hours (152.0 total - REG: 63.5 - AUD: 89.5)
I went through the MC questions for REG-3 and REG-4 today. I did really good on the REG-4 questions (92%). That section is part tax and part law. I still got 90% on the tax part and a bit over that on the law. Many of the things I missed in the tax part of REG-4 were RTCDQ problems (read the cockadoody question problem). On the REG-3 stuff I didn't do as hot, but still got 80%. Hopefully after tomorrow's class lecture I can get the questions up into the 90s on that section as well.
I forgot to mention in my previous post that I have my REG and BEC exams scheduled. I'll be taking REG on Monday February 1st at noon. That gives me 6 study days after the last REG class to get ready. It is a couple of days sooner than I'd like, but I don't want to overlap into the next class lectures. With AUD I didn't do much the last 5 or so days before the test so I feel like I can do it. I know there is more material in REG, so I may take a day off work for study time. I have BEC scheduled for Friday Februrary 26th. This gives me 9 days after the last class before the exam which should be plenty (assuming it is similar to AUD - both have 5 class lectures).
One other item on upcoming tests: I've gotten some word regarding sections I have not taken. A nice guy named Chris posted some comments on my blog which then resulted in an email exchange. He did the Becker classes for the FAR section and says they covered the material on the actual exam. This add the warm fuzzies for the section I think will be my hardest. A lady from my live classes said the Becker BEC material covers the test good as well. She did say that cost accounting was covered on the exam and to not skimp on the study time for that subject. So, two confirmations that BEC and FAR Becker material is a good representation of the test. While in the AUD class I got scared a bit by a couple of people everything I've heard from then on has increased my confidence in the exam.
Now to relax a bit before another work and study-filled week.
